A Good Historical Yarn,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Walls of Jericho - A Cavalry Tale (Kindle Edition)
If you like an historical novel based on factual events then this is a good read. The story starts with the son of the local lord, and a poor boy who is a farrier and looks after his grandfather. Fate brings them together. The lords son is commissioned into the army, and eventually the young farrier enlists in the army. The story gives a little insight into the army of the time, when rank and privilege were what mattered. The book relates their adventures in the days of Lord Wellesley, and the subsequent Portugese campaign. An enjoyable read.
